WWE SuperStars Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels go mano-a-mano backstage in this scenario for the wrestling extravaganza WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009.  Grab a steel chair and find your "dance partner" November 9th when the game tags in on the Nintendo DS, Wii, PS2, PS3, PSP, and Xbox 360.

They need to bring back the ability to wander freely throughout the backstage area. I loved when you could start in the ring, walk up the ramp, go backstage, go in a bunch of different rooms, find the environmental grapples in each room. That was good stuff.

I'm wondering what the breaking glass effect signifies, perhaps a KO?

if this game were xbox exclusive youd hear about how epic it was

The team that makes these games are the laziest designers i have ever seen. There is nothing new and it's using the same dated wrestling system. Don't buy it, just don't.

i just found out wrestling beat monday nite football ratings 2 weeks in a row so i guess people still watch lol

Man, this looks terrible.

At :45, Why does HBK stick his hand in his rear end? I know he's supposed to be grabbing it from the pain of being given a Northern Lights Suplex onto the concrete, but it really looks like he's sticking his fingers in there.

Also, the crowd noise is appropriate through most of this, since WWE crowds just ain't popping like they used to.

Hahahaha, why does Shawn Michaels look like he belongs in Planet of the Apes movies? Does he seriously look like this these days? That looks terrible!

Yeah, it looks like every WWE game that has come out since Smackdown 2 on PlayStation, and the video games on the 64 had the best game play out of all of them

These wrestling games are all about gameplay. I still bust out No Mercy on my 64 every now and then. Compared to today's graphics it almost looks like Lego WWE.

The TNA Impact game has better graphics.
